We've heard numerous PS3 price drop and PS3 backwards compatibility rumors several times over the last few months, but today SCRAWL is reporting the following (albeit unofficial) confirmation from their local Sony Rep, to quote:
"Over at my local GameStop (where I work), our Sony rep stopped in earlier today to update the PlayStation 3 kiosks and check in with us.
I decided to ask him about all the rumors going around on the PlayStation 3 slim. When I asked him about whether or not is coming he told me this:
"All I'm going to say is this: both a price drop and a firmware update with backwards compatibility are coming soon."
Directly from the mouth of a Sony rep. GamesCom is next week, folks. Don't be surprised if you hear the announcement."
